2:34 pm
turnaround. >> so preshcious. i love it! i didn't know for a fact that's a thank you for saving my life. >> yep. >> i interpret that as, quick throwing your trash all over my neighborhood i get stuck, so clean your litter up. >> i'm astonished it went up to the human. >> gail, you're going to be astonished by this as well. a fawn in our presence and this fawn not scared of humans and not scared of human-built structures. >> he learned how to walk. i need to challenge myself a little more. >> listen to the folks behind the camera. >> her little boy's growing up so fast. >> hoping it's the last time. he doesn't belong on stairs. belongs out in the field somewhere. >> so cute, though. it's a robot that can kick your robutt at air hockey. >> that's a problem. >> mean defense. does he have any offense? >> why this machine is a real changer. >> and man's best friends are in

2:38 pm
camera in an atm lobby. >> why would they stick around to watch it? >> because you're a goofball. >> witnesses watch wad was going on and called police and fire. he was go'ing through a difficult time. going through a financial breakup, turned to drinking and may have been intoxicated during the event. he also claimed he didn't remember doing this. he was like, yeah, now i remember. ordered 16-month suspended sentence for two years and be under 12 months of supervision, 180 hours of unpaid work. and a curfew of six months. imagine that's not going to help his financial situation. i have a couple of videos with a couple of accidents. both of them riders. the first is a bicycle rider. if notice the truck's waiting to make a right hand turn, a quick glimpse of a bicycle ride somewhere as the truck makes right hand turn, you see that same cyclist is struck by that

believe me. now robots are winning at air hockey. >> that's a problem. >> okay. he plays a mean defense. does he have any offense. >> nicholas, this robot has it all. this was all put together by some folks at the university in japan. this robot is made up of a four axis robotic arm, two high-speed cameras and an external pc, and it tracks the game at 500 frames per second. and this robot can change its strategy based on human performance. so it kind of analyzes what the human is doing, changes its strategy, accordingly. and forces the human to have kind of a psychological game with the robot. people who have played against this robot say it is challenging, even though they
2:41 pm
know they're going to lose to this robot. they like the psychological challenges. and tests have shown that this robot is successful in detecting players' behaviors, forcing them to change strategy. >> can you score on this thing or is it a total brick wall? >> in this video we don't see the human actually score against it. i don't know if anybody's ever scored against this thing. >> wow. >> but the crazy thing is, it in essence almost thinks. >> that is really freaky. right? >> monday. >> it's real or fake time. this week we've got magical snack making. >> you're seeing things. i didn't see it. >> manly mishaps. >> oh! >> the question is, real or fake? >> totally real. >> real. >> real. >> real. >> you decide, next.
